Once again, I’m two steps ahead in reading and about nine reviews back. I suspect that will continue for a long, long time.

Posted about my experiences at ALA in three posts (1, 2, 3), caught up on all my June reviews (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9), and posted a few miscellaneous book-related posts (1, 2, 3).

It’s been a busy month. I can’t believe all that’s happened. It seriously feels like ALA was months and months ago. I’m so grateful for all the people I met there, all the authors that took time out of their busy schedules to visit, the opportunities to work with other librarians…and the books. (Oh, yeah, it had to be said.)

Upcoming on the blog — we have BBAW coming up, and I definitely am planning on being very active in that. Other than that, I think it’s business as usual.

Wow – you got a lot of reading done! It is harder for me in the summer – that is when our business picks up and I take care of all the yard work so hubby can run the shop.

Cool that you went to ALA I want to go so bad next year. I need to find more info on this. 🙂
